Everything about the Donna Orsola experience is exceptional from the quirky but beautiful furnishings, to the excellent service and incredible food. The antipasti was the best we've tasted in Calabria and the pasta and fish dishes were superb. The desserts were out of this world and even the coffee was served with tiny choux pastry chocolate buns. A wonderful meal... More

Once you find Donna Orsola you will be at first struck by its quirky exterior and decor. The interior of the restaurant is furnished with pieces of antique style furniture - like having a meal in your gran's house. I absolutely loved it!! There is also a beautiful terraced area for al fresco dining but I would recommend making a... More

We found hits restaurant using the trip advisor app, and made a reservation using The Fork. We dined as a family, everyone enjoyed their meals. The setting was rustic and inviting. The food was delicious, much better than what we had at our local hotel. If we were to visit the area again we would definitely dine here.

Best food in Capo Vaticano (and also best food I had in Italy). We ordered an antipasti dish called "Donna Orsola" for 18 euros (serving 2) which I truly recommend! We then ordered one pasta dish and a meat dish for main which was also great! The meal was about 50-60 euros for both of us. We did not order... More

Get here for the summer months if you can, because a candlelit table outside is an experience in itself. This restaurant looks typically Italian when you walk in, but the menu goes beyond just that. There is definite 'quality over quantity' with the food, but don't think this is a slice of cordon bleu. They're not the biggest servings you... More
